2018 Nissan Leaf Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2018 Nissan Leaf

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Leaf's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Nissan, from back to front. It’s one of your Leaf’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2018 Nissan Leaf, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Nissan's recommendations.

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2018 Nissan Leaf drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Nissan Leaf may need driveshaft attention if you feel clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Nissan Leaf.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2018 Nissan Leaf drivetrain repair is expensive. Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
